This tour was awesome, and Bruce made it pretty interesting for us. The view was just spectacular, and we especially liked the Waimea Canyon. Being from Arizona, we didn't expect to see a similar geographic formation in Hawaii! Do this tour!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a safe place to store my belongings while on tour?

Yes, there is a small storage area located under the seats.

What kind of airplanes will be used?

Now operating two aircraft, take flight in either the Gippsland G8 AirVan or a Cessna 172 Skyhawk. The AirVan is the ideal plane for Kauai's skies, specifically designed for observational flights with its high wing design, huge 'bubble' windows for optimal photo opportunities and slow, stable cruising speed of 125-135 knots. This plane carries up to 6 passengers, making it ideal for families or groups. The Cessna Skyhawk is the #1 aircraft every built in America! A great plane for a party of two, one in the co-pilot seat and one in the back, the window can open for stellar photo opportunities!

What kind of experience does the pilot have?

Bruce Coulombe is a highly experienced Kauai fixed wing aviator and has a perfect safety record over his 20 year of piloting airplanes. He has flown this stunning route around Kauai hundreds of times over the past decade. In addition to his commercial pilot certificate and impressive instrument rating, Bruce holds a Ph.D. in Agronomy (Crop Science), making him uniquely qualified to describe in fascinating detail the agricultural activities on Kauai.

Mr. Anonymous

This was a great, affordable way to see the entire island. The service was more personal. We had the ride with just the two of us.... It was terrific meeting Bruce and Ellen. They are a wonderful and interesting couple. more

Wayne

We flew with Bruce a few years ago and had a wonderful flight. I was somewhat apprehensive since I have issuses with panic attacks..., he was so kind and reassuring that it made the flight very comfortable. Kaui is such a beautiful island you get a different perspective from the air. We enjoyed Bruce's vast knowledge of Kauai from the air. He even let my husband do a little bit of the flying since he had his private piolts license. We highly recommend more

It's been 5 months since our Kauai vacation, and Aliya and I are still sharing our flight experience with friends. Every once... in awhile we find a service provider that does everything right -- hospitality, value, and exceptional experience. Wings Over Kauai is such a company and I posted my pictures to your website so that others who might be contemplating a helicopter air tour can see just how fantastic the views were from your plane.

Joseph & Elenor Carney

This flight ended up being the highlight of our trip to Hawaii. At first we were a bit hesitant as my wife got sea sick on the bo...at trip the day before. However she had no problems on the flight. Bruce, our pilot did a wonderful job! more

Duane

Highky recommend this tour, our pilot was the best, we loved the tour it was beautiful to see Kauai from the air, we were able to ...see the waterfalls, the scenery is breath taking. All I can tell you is book this trip ASAP. And I highly recommend purchasing the YouTube video of your trip you will love it and you can send it to all your friends and family. They will certainly be jealous. If this is on your bucket list, just do it...it's worth it. more

Paula

Dori and Josh were awesome! Worth every penny. Best way to see Kauai. Highly recommended and great customer service. Over 10+ year...s of experience! more

John & Jessica

The airplane tour was the highlight of our trip. The scenery was beyond our expectations. It was just beautiful. Josh, the pilo...t, explained everything to us as we passed by the different areas. Josh is a very professional person and very engaging. I would recommend this trip to everyone. more

Winifred

This was one of our favorite things that we did while we were in Kauai(and we did a lot!). The flight was beautiful! I can't ...even put into words how amazing this was. I was a little apprehensive about being in a plane versus the helicopter but I was happy with the decision we made. I saw helicopters along the tour and they do get a little closer to the waterfalls and mountains but there is something truly amazing about getting a zoomed out view of Kauai, I feel like I got to see more of the island this way. In addition to the scenery, the pilot was extremely nice and knowledgeable and made sure we were comfortable throughout the whole flight. Furthermore, the other staff at Wings over Kauai were AMAZING! They have a few surprises for their guests that I won't ruin here, but I will say that they are very generous! I HIGHLY recommend this activity to everyone!!! more
